Verflechtungen / Interwovenness

About the Project

The metaphor of interweaving plays a central role in the humanities and social sciences and science and digitalisation research, also known as science and technology studies. At the same time, braiding and weaving operate in a field of tension between craft, art and self-realisation. The project explores the potential of this metaphor not only intellectually-conceptually, but also experimentally: How does our thinking about autonomy and heteronomy, the inclusion and presuppositionality of things in infrastructures change through metaphors of interweaving and interwovenness? In a first closed workshop on February 12, this field of tension will be examined by looking at different weaving and braiding techniques with the artist Evey Kwong.
